Marvel Comicâ€™s Captain America is the mightiest soldier with the super powerful secret soldier formula that makes him a super man. Sadly, this muscle bound hero that took on the whole Nazi army during WWII seems to be afraid of those American people whoâ€™ve joined the Tea Party movement. Not only is Cappy quaking in his little red booties, but heâ€™s sure that the Tea Party folks are dangerous racists, too.
Isnâ€™t it wonderful that a decades old American comic book hero is now being used to turn readers against our very political system, being used to slander folks that are standing up for real American principles in real life â€” and one called â€œCaptain Americaâ€ at that?
In issue number 602 of Captain America, a new story line has begun called â€œTwo Americas.â€ In it the current Captain (there have been a few of them, apparently) is on the trail of a faux Captain America that is mentally deranged and getting chummy with some white supremacist, anti-government, survivalists types going by the name of â€œthe Watchdogs.â€ While investigating this subversive group, Captain America and his partner The Falcon â€” a black super hero â€” have decided to try and infiltrate the secretive organization.
In preparation for the infiltration, Marvel Comics depicts the two super heroes out of costume and observing from a rooftop a street filled with what can only be described as a Tea Party protest. The scene shows crowds of people in city streets carrying signs that say, â€œstop the socialists,â€ â€œtea bag libs before they tea bag you,â€ and â€œno to new taxes.â€ Naturally, the people in these crowds are depicted as being filled with nothing but white folks.
